Happy to reveal my new painting Microcosm which is part of WOW x WOW’s new MicroVisions exhibition. This piece features an axolotl, an adorable salamander nicknamed the “Mexican walking fish.” Microcosm is an acrylic on canvas, 4″ wide by 4″ high. The exhibition is now live and you can view it at: https://wowxwow.com/microvisions-5.
Sharing my new painting Biodiversity. This piece features two tarsiers, which are small leaping primates found only in the islands of Southeast Asia. Biodiversity is a fun homage to the diversity of nature, inspired by bold colors and mixed prints seen in fashion. It features a mix of plants not normally found together in nature, and most of their colors have been exaggerated or altered to add to the whimsy of the painting. Biodiversity is an acrylic on canvas, 6″ wide by 8″ high and available through LeMieux Galleries’ 2021 Online Holiday Show: https://lemieuxgalleries.com/show/lemieux-galleries-2021-online-holiday-show
Excited to share my new painting Ouroboros. Black panthers in Asia and Africa are actually melanistic leopards while those in the Americas are melanistic jaguars. Beauty and protection are among much of the symbolism behind panthers while the snake is seen as a symbol of rebirth. Ouroboros is an acrylic on canvas, 6″ wide by 6″ high, and you can view it (as well as the rest of the series) online here: https://amyguidry.com/ouroboros.html.

A few photos of my current painting in progress. Focusing on the rainforest for this one, specifically the Amazon and its flora and fauna. Also wanted to work on a larger piece, so this one is 20″ wide by 20″ high. It’s heavily detailed courtesy of all the leaves and tree branches. Not to mention full of white-faced capuchin monkeys! The sketch on paper maps everything out before I transferred it to canvas. The painting itself is an acrylic on canvas. I’m still working on the rainforest background at the moment, and the blue morpho butterflies. Butterflies may be small, but they are hugely symbolic in my work.
Making some progress on my current painting. I’m working on the details of the dodo bird’s face and feathers at the moment. There’s still a little work left to do on the background, but I just had to work on the dodo. I took some artistic license on the details. For example, adding folds of skin around the eyes and wrinkles. All the old illustrations and even the model recreations give him a completely smooth face, but after looking at tons of various bird photos, I decided against that and made my own interpretation. This is just a close-up photo- the entire painting is 20″ wide by 10″ high, and is an acrylic on canvas. More details soon.
